This website is not intended for children and we do not knowingly collect data relating to children.
For the purpose of the General Data Protection Regulations 2016 (“GDPR”), the data controller is Jumar Solutions Limited (Company No. 02333415) of Jumar House, Pinewood Business Park, Coleshill Road, Solihull, West Midlands B37 7HG. This means that we are responsible for deciding how we hold and use personal information about you.
1. DATA PROTECTION PRINCIPLES
- We will comply with data protection law and principles, which means that your data will be:
- Used lawfully, fairly and in a transparent way;
- Collected only for valid purposes that we have clearly explained to you and not used in any way that is incompatible with those purposes;
- Relevant to the purposes we have told you about and limited only to those purposes;
- Accurate and kept up to date;
- Kept only as long as necessary for the purposes we have told you about; and
- Kept securely.
2. LEGAL BASIS FOR PROCESSING YOUR PERSONAL DATA
We aim to provide excellent recruitment and IT solutions services to our customers and candidates. We aim to create the best match between open vacancies and candidates seeking employment. In the case of our solutions business, we aim to create the best possible solution to meet the requirements of our clients. To do this, we will need to process data about you.
We hold and process your data in pursuit of our legitimate interest in providing services to our candidates and clients. "Legitimate interest" means the interest of our business in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best service /product and the best and most secure experience. We make sure we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights before we process your personal data for our legitimate interests. We do not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law). It is in our legitimate interests to decide whether to appoint you or put you forward for a particular role because it is beneficial to our business to seek to fulfil vacancies. You can obtain further information about how we assess our legitimate interests against any potential impact on you in respect of specific activities by contacting us.
Once we place a candidate with one of our clients, the data is held as part of the contractual and legal obligation that we have as a recruitment agency and recruitment business as defined in the Employment Agencies and Employment Business Regulations 2003.
3. THE DATA WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU

8. RETENTION OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA
We retain data on candidates for a period of two years from our most recent meaningful contact, unless you request otherwise. This period is extended to six years, if we place you in a role. If that role is a contract position, this is six years from the end of the placement. If it is a permanent placement, it is for a period of six years from the start date of your employment with our client.
If you apply for a role via our Websites or via a third-party’s website, we will hold your data for up to a month – during which time we will make reasonable endeavours to contact you. If we make contact and mutually agree that we will retain your details for that role and/or any subsequent future roles, the two-year policy will apply as above.
If we do not manage to make contact, or if we mutually agree not to continue holding your data, we will delete it within a month.
If you exercise your right to erasure, we will retain all information we are legal obligated to do so (such as employment contract data or financial payment), for the period that is set out by that legal obligation. We may also keep your name and the bare minimum of contact details so that we do not contact you or re-enter your details inadvertently in the future. Where technology allows, any data that we retain following an erasure request, will be anonymised.
When we register a new candidate on our database, we will send a copy of our data processing document entitled ‘Jumar and your data’ which gives further details on data retention periods and our data protection policies.

- right to be informed about how and why your personal data is being used and/or processed;
- right to request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”. This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it);
- right to request of rectification of your personal data. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us;
- right to request erasure of your personal data (right to be forgotten). This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law.

You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms;
- right of data portability/to request transfer of your personal data. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format.
